    Late last week during a debate in Parliament, Thailand’s Prime Minister Abhisit Vejajjiva publically admitted his dual citizenship for the first time. The 46 year-old Thai/British citizen has been prime minister since December of 2008 (the youngest prime minister in nearly 60 years) after a political career that began with his election to Parliament at the youthful age of 27. Until last week Abhisit had successfully concealed his British citizenship.

    President Obama bid farewell on Friday to Robert Gibbs, one of his first aides and closest friends, with a parting tribute to his press secretary’s fashion sense. Obama finally returned the light blue tie he borrowed from Gibbs to wear at the 2004 Democratic National Convention — locked in a glass frame for posterity. "I wanted this on the record, on camera," Obama said. "I'm finally returning Robert's tie." Gibbs’s signature pastel-colored clothing has long occupied the fashion pages of Washington papers, but now the president has confirmed that the baby-blue tie won the approval of the first lady and...

    While our nation languishes amidst record food and energy prices, unprecedented underemployment (including those excluded from the workforce) and economic stagnation, crippling regulations, and an administration in contempt of two court decisions, the media would rather distract us with the Islamist uprising in Egypt.  It is imperative that we keep up the pressure on Obama and the Democrats by denying them the opportunity to preclude our attention from more relevant and ominous domestic problems.  On the other hand, there is one salient question that we should excogitate from Obama's handling of the Egyptian insurgency.  If Obama is willing to listen...

    In the wake of historic midterm losses, people wondered whether Barack Obama would be willing or even able to execute a shift to the center and work with Republicans in the House to find areas of common ground on policy, or whether he would shift to regulatory innovation to push his agenda. Most people guessed the latter, but a personnel change yesterday at EPA may suggest that the White House is looking for olive branches rather than bureaucratic warfare. Lisa Heinzerling, an advocate for aggressive regulatory expansion to combat global warming, has resigned: One of the Obama administrationÂ’s most aggressive...

    The news just becomes more and more outrageous. America is floundering, America is sinking, his advisers are quitting, his poll numbers are tanking, while he parties on Martha's Vineyard for $50,000 a week. Have we ever had a president who parties nine times in barely half a year, and spends $50,000 a week? The people are hurting. The working classes hurting. People who struggle, and try hard, and pay taxes, can't find jobs. The false unemployment number of 9.5% is double what George Bush had, and that was called "the worst economy ever".

Even before their showdown, the White House's rebuke of Gen. Stanley McChrystal suggested it would be hard for him to save his job. Ahead of his meeting with the president, McChrystal arrived at the Pentagon for meetings, including once scheduled with Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

    No matter what Sarah Palin does, the media will attack her and spin any information beyond recognition. During the election, she only had 63 days to fight these smears while campaigning. This proved to be not enough time as the media attack dogs capitalize on the Alinsky strategy of manipulating church and the poor. To the elite (which includes the media), we are ALL poor, and this means even the middle class. Sarah Palin’s decision to step down is now proving to be a stroke of genius as she has learned from other Republicans in Congress such as DeMint, Culberson,...
